The Little Death
The slow throb of desire
My thighs covered in particles of fire
Your mouth its curved grace 
Sickening spark bad liar

I dreamed a funeral pyre
The flames come up a fiery tiger
I wake from the deadly tomb
A dull ache where there once was...Read More

i remember you;
giddy little child
with the mona-lisa smile
and sun-burnt hair
as it brushed against
your ivory skin
you were so innocent then

i never saw the sadness
that lingered in your eyes
the depths of green
seemed to pull others in
that hypnotizing glare
hid your pain well

Premium Member All the Jerseys had a Nine on Them
Such a commotion this morning on my lawn
Way out, so I had to get closer to see what it was
At first I thought someone had left a bunch of colorful equipment out.
But then I noticed it was fast-moving, like blowing,...Read More

BEFORE THEY SILENCE MY VOICE
Before they silence my voice
Under jackboots and bone crushing dogs
I must set fort before dusk
As I am shielded 
By his gore
And crafted like Daniel
In the lions den
And Jonah in the whales gut

I must scurry to ventilate
With my traducers
At the gate
Because...Read More

Seven Quatrains
It took me very long to ripen and sing
And active I have remained since then 
People do talk about my wrongdoings
But not once about my righteousness

As they soared high above the clouds
I held my breath fearing their steep fall
My dreams...Read More

Discovered they both had sharp knives
Somewhat chatty
Both were catty

Nine lives
Nine lives 
Flowing nine ways 
With every life 
Flowing one way 

Nine lives
Running nine miles
While giving a life 
To every mile

Nine lives 
Fetching many tunes
from many flows 
With each flow
Running through 
Every mile 
With a song....Read More

Twilight
Flesh and gooey paste, stuck in the mud
Scooped up, with bare hands, they sod
Say nothing, to this or that god

Picked up like perfect bods
Split between our wards
As if they appreciate our sobs

Douse 'em with gasoline, and light up the 'tards
Played...Read More

Death Friended Me On Facebook
(while trapped in Pottstown 
Memorial Hospital parking lot).

My humble apology to those,
who posted uber up lyft ting messages

without said scrivener swiftly
tailoring timely acknowledgement
from one harried styled leaper,

thus feel free to take
leguminous litigious licorice flavor

Cutie Cat
Cute as a button with elegant stances,
Tip-toes so quietly then bravely prances.
Gracefully manicured, an art of purr-fection,
Is seen for a second then changes direction.

So fiery and spunky and lively at play,
Loves pizza and pasta and tuna, if made!
Is clumsy and...Read More

Like the brightness of the sun you do make me sneeze
Upon making contact you even make me wheeze
You also give me itchy watery eyes
Like you, I swear I too have nine lives
While playing you tend to get a little feisty...Read More

Premium Member Road on Fire--Playing with Palindromes
One of our wildest, most memorable family sagas
involved my reckless brother, a racecar, a warm
spring day, and a non-adventurer, me. I warned, “Pop
said stay home today and mow.”  “Sometimes Pa’s a sap”!
he scoffed. “When I race, I always win...Read More

A Snakes Empty Shell
A Snakes Empty Shell

When days seem dark
and nights are stark,
your thoughts will fill
with loss and chill.
Yet, what is loss,
but skin, snakes toss
for, all of this,
will not be missed

A dog sheds coat,
and sea-tides go,
to bring in new,
a choice to choose.

By the Numbers

Everybody love to say they’re number one,
but it takes two
to make beautiful music, 
so we’re told
Pitch perfect
That one favorite song two lovers have,
it never gets old
After ninety nine repeats, 
it sounds one zero zero multiple beautiful than it did before
